Korn: Mr. Rogers Meaning

Mr. Rogers Lyrics

Boomerang, Zoomerang, Doomerang, Up

the time has come to realize what you are, what you've done inside
The time has come, we'll have something to talk about
I will too

Looking back. . .dumb
and now I realize. . .old man
how much you...

    It's about how Jonathan as a kid, lived by the morals taught by Mr. Rogers, and he got bullied in school, and taken advantage of by other people because of it. It was because he acted caring and nice towards others, and people just hurt him and made fun of him. He's not bashing or directly attacking Mr. Rogers, he's just singing about something that really happened to him, like in basically all of Korn's lyrics. It's not a song meant to attack someone, it's just about a personal experience.

    "Back in the day when I was a speed freak, um... even further back when I was a little kid watchin' Mr. Rogers, that shit was scary. He was a freaky old man... Land of Make-believe and Mr. Fuckin Mc Feely and shit... made me sick. So back when I was doing speed, like for 5 or 6 days I'd be trippin out and my brain would start to get freaky and get schizophrenic and stuff, and I'd tape it and watch it everyday over and over... I don't know, I was sick in the head. As a kid he told me to be polite and all it did was get me picked on. I fucking hate that man. Thanks for making me polite and trusting everyone, and easy to take advantage of. So I spent 3 months on that one song, just tweakin' on it, and it was totally just my Mr. Rogers obsession, about how evil I thought he was. Pretty much drug induced." - jon

    This song is really about John being a speed freak and hating on Mr. Rogers for the dumb things that he said. Mr. Rogers is already kind of creepy first thing as he says "won't you be my neighbor?".He hates him because,he would say be polite, yet he would get picked on.

    The "Boomerang-Toomerang-Zoomerang, up" is about one of the characters who is the main antagonist of the show, she uses her Boomerang-Toomerang-Zoomerang to flip the neighborhood upside down.

    This song essentially is about Mr. Rogers. Not an outright attack but a strong disdain for the man. He taught JD that everyone was nice and would want to be a "good neighbor" soooo not true considering the childhood JD had. Kids were mean because he was being nice and considerate of others and people took advantage of that. The one who hurt JD when he was young was not a creepy old man but a female friend of the family. JD's father says the same.

    I'm sorry, but if this song *isn't* about an actual rape and is some in actuality some twisted attack on Mr. Rogers for teaching kindness, then that's just messed up.

    This song is about JD watching Mr. Rodgers as a child and he hated him for some reason.
    so he wrote a song about him and he's talking crap about him, listen to the song.
    And he doesn't want other kids to Mr.Rodgers because he has creepiness in him.

    This is the man who turned your trust into an easier way to get fucked. I wish that you and I could kill him.
    Thank you Jonathan.

    Spen is that u? I always thought it alluded to child molestation, not a specific case, but like I think it could be targeting all the sick fucks in general, and using Mr. Rogers as an example, because I remember hearing something creepy about him at one time.

    Idiot. Mr.Rogers from TV is who Jon refers to. "Hello Neighbor" is Mr.Rogers favorite saying. I also looked it up on the internet. Why don't you idiots learn to use the computer. Now the song verses seem as if he would be raped but no.

    alright look I wrote an interpretation for daddy as well the two songs sort of link togather. In daddy he's talking about how he was raped by some creepy old man and when he told his parents they didn't believe him (see my interpretation on daddy for datails) and this song is about the creepy neighbor who raped him hence the name Mr. Rodgers because he always says "hello neighbor" and he's old
    and frankly kinda creepy. (and where the fuck in the lyrics does it say anything about him hating mr rogers and taping it and watching it and hating him more????????????????????????????????????????????)

    I agree with slipknot_feined. JD hated Mr. Rogers so much for making him think that if you be nice to everyone that you will be treated the same way.

    Wow, that's wrong.

    The song is about the close family friend of JD's mother who lived in the neighbourhood and allegedly molested JD as a child. It's pretty obvious, especially the 'child fucker' lyric repeated in the second verse.
